Amir completes five-wicket haul on rain-marred day two

Mohammad Amir, Test cricket

Mohammad Amir completed his first five-for since his comeback into Test cricket after a gap of nearly five years on a rain-marred day two in Kingston during which only 11.3 overs of play was possible. The morning session was wasted after covers had bled moisture onto the pitch. The play began after over four hours delay under heavy cloud cover only to be disrupted again for good.

Devendra Bishoo and Jason Holder continued the show of resistance from the previous day as the pair kept Pakistan seamers at bay for over one hour. Bishoo was finally accounted by Amir after he edged a fairly wide delivery to Sarfraz Ahmed. Alzarri Joseph was the next man to be dismissed after being bowled by an inswinging beauty.

Soon after, the rain came back to signal the end of day two, with West Indies still at 278 for 9.
